Verses for the week:
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT)
I’m an information gatherer. I love to read articles and books on various topics, gathering all of the information, and then come to conclusions on what I think about a particular topic. It appears to be the logical, sensible thing to do.
Yet, if I were to read every book and article ever written, all of my thoughts would pale in comparison to God’s.
[Tweet “God’s thoughts are perfect and complete because God is perfect and complete. “]
God lacks nothing. God sees the end from the beginning. God knows what lies up ahead. God knows what I am going to say before I say it, and what I am going to face two year, ten years from now.
When I cannot understand what God is doing, or why He has allowed something into my life, I can turn to these verses and trust His heart, resting in the truth that He knows what He is doing.
Use these verses in your life this week. Write them down or commit them to memory so that when you are tempted to doubt God’s plan and purposes for your life, you can remind yourself that you are carried by the one who truly knows it all.
Have a blessed week!
